I need a second opinion here a friend of mine redirected his URL.com to URL.com/something using .htaccess 302 redirect method so that now all the traffic entering through URL.com will be redirected to URL.com/something basically URL.com/something now acts as a landing page for all the traffic. My question, is this considered as something bad for SEO or it won't affect SEO and rating what do you think?

"302 redirect" is considered as only temporarily redirect so I don't think it will affect your SEO but if leave this redirect for a long time then it will eventually impact your SEO.

Temporary redirects are meant for that just temp use. Say redirecting to a maintenance page. Not for perm redirecting. Use the proper redirection if its permanent. Also why would you even want to do that vs just changing your actual tld page?

Instead of redirecting yoururl.com to some kind of landing page you can create a subdirectory or even a subdomain to achieve the same result but more SEO friendly way!

a landing page can be done anyway the webmaster wishes. And is not really the thing brought up in this question. he is redirecting a tld landing to a different page, that is the wrong way to do what they are after, or appear to be after.

Be very careful with 302 and 301 redirects because it looks like Google Panda and Penguin don't really like it. I suggest you to just switch directories so that you don't have to use any redirect!

If you do it properly it will not effect SEO. DO things properly and in compliance either everything not just google and you dont have to worry about it.

Agree if ".htaccess redirect" is done correctly then you have nothing to wary about, just make sure you are not using it for "backdoor seo"

The method you use has nothing to do with it's just using the proper "tag" you don't have to use htaccess to redirect.

You can use this HTML 302 redirect meta tag.

Code:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; url=http://www.yoursite.com/newpage.html" />
